Ok, I already did a thread about cichlids and was surprised at the lack of responses. This should probably get fewer. When i was still married, maybe about 3 or 4 years ago my wife comes home with a little turtle she "rescued" by taking it off of the road between two lakes used by the water co. She said she didn't put it on one side or the other becasue she was afraid something on one of the lakes would eat it. It sure was little, maybe 3 inches long or so. Taking one look at it i ask her, "ummm.........honey, you know what kind of turtle this is?" She didn't and begged me to put in the 1500 gallon pond i had to house fish in the summer. Against my better judgment i did and never saw him again until i drained the pond in september and found a "moving rock". Since then I went on the net and found plenty of husbandry info. Today "Simon" lives in a 50 gallon tank which he is steadily outgrowing. Great pet. So far he hasn't taken a finger off, but not from a lack of trying.
